Kind of Bathsheba

Bathsheba (1875-77) by the French painter Paul Cézanne (1839-1906).
Cézanne painted various versions of Bathsheba. I think, it was a good excuse to paint a nude in open-air. Here she has a servant, indicating that she’s probably bathsheba, in the background is a temple indicating the ancient world. Only king David on his balcony is missing.
